Paul Schrader’s First Reformed trailer & poster with Ethan Hawke
A24 has released the first trailer and poster for Paul Schrader’s highly-acclaimed thriller First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried. It made its World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival, followed by screenings at Telluride and Toronto, and is set to open on May 18, 2018. Check out the First Reformed trailer below, along with the poster in the gallery!
Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, American Gigolo, Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.
The producers are Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa, Frank Murray, Jack Binder, Greg Clark, Victoria Hill, Gary Hamilton, and Deepak Sikka. The production companies are Killer Films, Fibonacci Films, Omeira Studio Partners, and Arclight Films.
